Consider becoming a Hospice Volunteer; training offered in April
Orange City Area Health System is seeking volunteers to be part of its Hospice program, and is offering a three-session training in April.
Hospice Volunteer Training is Monday April 11 from 6-9pm, Thursday April 14 from 6-9pm, and Saturday April 16 from 9am-noon in the lower level meeting room at the health system’s downtown campus at 400 Central Avenue NW in Orange City.
“There are many ways to become involved with Hospice,” explains Kim Jansma, Orange City Hospice Volunteer Coordinator. “By volunteering you will touch and enrich many lives, including your own.”
According to Jansma, volunteers will have the opportunity to make home visits, serve in the Hospice office, or work with bereaved families. “To help make this experience truly rewarding for both the volunteer and patient,” explains Jansma,, “the Hospice team works with each volunteer to help assess interests and skills before placement with a patient or family.”
Those interested in learning more about this valuable experience — or to sign up for the three-session training — are asked to call Kim Jansma, Orange City Home Health and Hospice, at 737-5257.
